So why the hell would we give them to any prospect in the system?
My bad if i misunderstood the ''players - as if only the Ducks roster'' with ''players - every player in the system'' terms.
We're talking about rostered players on the Ducks, Kalvin, and they
get to choose their numbers. Once a prospect has established themselves, they get to pick their number. The numbers they pick are whatever is available.
Prospects establish themselves at different rates. It took Fowler all of, what? 2 months? It took Bonino a couple of years. The end result is the same, though. They got to pick their number. Where is this mess you speak of?
